(ARCHIVE) Just weeks after John Bolton's charge against Donald Trump, a new book aims to lift the veil on "the most dangerous man in the world". Where the former national security adviser portrayed an ignorant and self-interested leader, the book to be released next week focuses on the youth of the President in a dysfunctional family.

Robert Trump ’ s lawsuit dismissed by court in New York but judge suggests family may try to block book in state supreme court.

President Trump ' s younger brother filed a temporary restraining order on Tuesday in an attempt to block the publication of an unflattering tell - all book by the President' s niece , Mary L. Trump .

(Bloomberg) -- President Donald Trump’s younger brother lost his fight for an injunction against a damning memoir written by their estranged niece, Mary Trump, who said her book will expose the toxic nature of the family.

Robert Trump’s motion for a preliminary injunction against the scheduled July 14 release of the book was denied Monday by Justice Hal Greenwald in Poughkeepsie, New York, according to a copy of the order provided by the book publisher, Simon & Schuster.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump ’ s brother is asking a New York City judge to prevent the president’ s niece from publishing a tell - all book , which is expected to be released later this month. In court papers, Robert Trump ' s lawyers argue that Mary Trump and others had signed a settlement

President Donald Trump ' s brother has, as expected, filed a new lawsuit seeking to permanently block publication of their niece ' s new tell - all book about the wealthy family , a day after a judge in another New York state court tossed out his initial effort on jurisdiction grounds. Robert Trump ' s latest court

“The unfettered right to publish is a sacred American freedom and a founding principle of our republic, and we applaud the court for affirming well-established precedents against prior restraint and pre-publication injunctions,” the publisher said in a statement.

The lawsuit alleges the memoir violates a secrecy deal the family struck as part of a 2001 settlement agreement over the will of the family’s late patriarch, Fred Trump. Mary Trump and Simon & Schuster argued the agreement isn’t valid and that it can’t override her First Amendment rights.

The memoir, “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man,” portrays the president as a liar and narcissist who rose to power after being coddled by his father, the media and banks. Details from the book have been widely reported in the media.

  The man Trump is accused of paying to take his SAT exam died in 1999, but his widow denied that he would have helped cheat the system The president's niece, Mary Trump, claimed in her book that her uncle Donald paid his close friend, Joe Shapiro, to take the SATs for him in her book.But now the widow of a man with the same name, who was friends with Trump, is throwing that claim into question.

Queens county surrogate court judge Peter Kelly said on Thursday “several improprieties” in the filing by Robert Trump , the president’ s younger brother , meant the bid to stop the book was “fatally defective”.

Days after Donald Trump ' s administration tried and failed to block the release of his former National Security Advisor John Bolton' s new memoir, the The book is also expected to confirm Mary as a key source in a New York Times investigation of Trump family finances published in 2018, for which she

Greenwald noted in his decision that more than 600,000 copies of the book have already been shipped.

“Comparing the potential enormous cost and logistical nightmare of stopping the publication, recalling and removing hundreds of thousands of books from all types of booksellers, brick and mortar and virtual, libraries and private citizens, is an insurmountable task at this time,” the judge wrote.

Robert Trump’s lawyer Charles Harder didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

”The First Amendment forbids prior restraints because they are intolerable infringements on the right to participate in democracy,” Theodore Boutrous, Mary Trump’s lawyer with Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP, said in an emailed statement. “Tomorrow, the American public will be able to read Mary’s important words for themselves.”

Mary Trump wrote in the book that she was first moved to take action in 2017 as she watched “democracy disintegrating and people’s lives unraveling” as a result of her uncle’s actions. She also claims she was the source of leaked Trump Organization tax documents central to a Pulitzer Prize-winning report in the New York Times detailing the president’s finances. That report revealed financial schemes used by the president during the 1990s to avoid tax liabilities.

The president previously dismissed the Times report as a “hit piece” that was “old” and “boring.” Last week, White House spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany called Mary Trump’s work “a book of falsehoods” full of “absurd allegations.”

The book was originally put under a temporary restraining order before a July 10 hearing, but an appeals court judge lifted the ban on publication. Simon & Schuster then announced it was moving up the publication date by two weeks to July 14.
